1st September 2005: 5th day >> Afternoon at Junagadh
I reached Junagadh by 1:00pm (from Gir Lion Sanctuary) and took a room in Hotel National, in Kalwa Chowk, in the heart of the city. After lunch went out and did a city sights tour by auto for Rs 60/- and saw Upperkot Fort, Darbar Hall Museum, Mahabat Makbara and Narsingh Mehta Chowk.

2nd September 2005 : Junagadh - Porbandar - Dwaraka
I left Hotel at Junagadh at 6:45 am and went to Girnar Hill (but then decided not to climb the 10,000 steps, to the top to see the Jain temples there) from a distance and then to the Ashokan Edicts; but that was closed so could not see the Rock Edicts of Ashoka. Drove on to Porbandar arriving there at 9:30am and first had breakfast at Swagat Restaurant and then went to Kirti Mandir by the coast; where the House where Gandhi was born is kept as a Memorial Museum.
